Nexus Announces Granting of Water Rights for Independence Gold Project

10.04.2024  |  Newsfile

Vancouver, April 10, 2024 - Nexus Uranium Corp. (CSE: NEXU) (OTCQB: GIDMF) (FSE: 3H1) (the "Company" or "Nexus") is pleased to announce it has been granted water rights for its Independence gold project in Nevada (the "Independence Project"). The Nevada Division of Water Resources approved both of the Company's permits effective April 3rd, 2024. The approved permits include the Independence Project and the adjacent Section 17, previously acquired in 2020 for the purpose of attaining water rights, exceed the estimated water requirement for both development and operation of a low-cost heap-leach operation.

"The granting of water rights represents a material derisking step for the Independence Project and represents one of the significant gating items required for future production," commented Jeremy Poirier, CEO of Nexus Uranium. "This represents the culmination of over three years of work with the State and permitting agencies as we worked to provide a clear pathway for mine development. It also comes at an opportune time with gold prices continuing to set new records which may significantly increase both the value of the asset and its attractiveness to potential suitors. We continue to advance our evaluation of strategic alternatives to unlock value for both Nexus and its shareholders."

About the Independence Project

The Independence Project is located in one of the premiere gold mining jurisdictions, the Battle Mountain mining district of Northern Nevada, and is located entirely within Nevada Gold Mines' Phoenix Mine permitted Plan of Operations. Nevada Gold Mines is a joint venture between Barrick Gold (61.5%) and Newmont (38.5%), which is forecasted to produce between 2.7 to 2.9 million ounces of gold at a cash cost of US$980 - $1,060 per ounce (Source: Nevada Gold Mines 2024 Outlook retrieved from https://www.barrick.com/English/operations/nevada-gold-mines/default.aspx).

The Independence Project hosts an M&I (measured and indicated) resource of 334,300 ounces of gold (28M tonnes at 0.41 g/t gold) and an inferred resource of 847,000 ounces (9M tonnes at 3.22 g/t gold) of gold with a substantial silver credit. A 2022 Preliminary Economic Assessment (PEA) outlined a low-cost heap leach operation focusing on the near-surface resource with total production of 195,443 ounces of gold at an all-in sustaining cost of $1,078 (U.S.) per ounce of gold.

The economic evaluation of the PEA utilized a US$1,700 per ounce gold price assumption to drive a NPV5% of US$17.6M and IRR of 18%. It also demonstrated significant leverage to gold prices, yielding a US$59.6M NPV5% and IRR of 35.9% assuming a gold price of US$2,125 per ounce, which is lower than the current spot price of US$2,385 per ounce.

About Nexus Uranium Corp.

Nexus Uranium Corp. is a multi-commodity development company focused on advancing the Cree East uranium project in the Athabasca Basin and the Wray Mesa uranium-vanadium project in Utah in addition to its precious metals portfolio that includes the development-stage Independence mine located adjacent to Nevada Gold Mine's Phoenix-Fortitude mine in Nevada, the Napoleon gold project in British Columbia, and a package of gold claims in the Yukon. The Wray Mesa project covers 6,282 acres within the heart of the prolific Uruvan mining district in Utah and has extensive historical drilling of over 500 holes defining multiple mineralized zones. The Independence Project hosts an M&I (measured and indicated) resource of 334,300 ounces of gold (28M tonnes at 0.41 g/t gold) and an inferred resource of 847,000 ounces (9M tonnes at 3.22 g/t gold) of gold with a substantial silver credit. A 2022 Preliminary Economic Assessment (PEA) outlined a low-cost heap leach operation focusing on the near-surface resource with total production of 195,443 ounces of gold at an all-in sustaining cost of $1,078 (U.S.) per ounce of gold. The Napoleon project comprises over 1,000 hectares and prospective for multiple forms of gold mineralization, with exploration in the area dating back to the 1970s with the discovery of high-grade gold. The Yukon gold projects are comprised of almost 8,000 hectares of quartz claims prospective for high-grade gold mineralization with historical grab sampling highlights of 144 g/t gold.

Nexus Uranium cautions investors the preliminary economic assessment is preliminary in nature, it includes inferred mineral resources that are considered too speculative geologically to have the economic considerations applied to them that would enable them to be categorized as mineral reserves, and there is no certainty that the preliminary economic assessment will be realized. The Company further cautions investors Mineral Resources which are not Mineral Reserves do not have demonstrated economic viability and further cautions investors the quantity and grade of the reported inferred Mineral Resources are uncertain in nature ‎and there has been insufficient exploration to define these inferred Mineral Resources as ‎indicated Mineral Resources.

The Company cautions investors it has yet to verify the historical data and further cautions investors grab samples are selective by nature and are unlikely to represent average grades of sampling on the entire property.

The technical content of this news release has been reviewed and approved by Warren D. Robb, P.Geo. (BC), a Director and VP Exploration of Nexus Uranium Corp. and a Qualified Person under National Instrument 43-101.
